Today marks the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The SC’s 2013 Shelby decision opened the floodgates to discriminatory voting practices. McConnell MUST take up and pass the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2020 to restore the full protections of the VRA!!

As we celebrate 55 years of the Voting Rights Act, our work to ensure access to the ballot isn’t over. Congress must pass the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act and we must give states the resources they need to amid the COVID-19 crisis.

Civil rights leaders like John Lewis shed blood to secure passage of the Voting Rights Act, signed into law 55 years ago today. With voter suppression tactics on the rise, we must ensure every person has access to the ballot box. We need the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act NOW.
